I’m confused by the Strong mentions. There really isn’t a single episode that would act as a panel friendly tape for him and Cox from the same show is present right there with Hunting.June 11, 2020 at 3:00 pm #1203528602This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 11, 2020 at 3:02 pm #1203528608

I’d say he has winning tapes in the forms of Return and This is Not For Tears, both of which are highly emotional, showcasing his position as the show’s heart.
In all honesty, Cox, Strong, Snook, Macfadyen, and Culkin could get away with submitting the finale. They all have other options, but they get some juicy material there and they all play it perfectly.June 11, 2020 at 3:10 pm #1203528619
Regarding Kidman, people are saying this is subtle? What I see in this clip are two fairly flashy performances on that could totally be rewarded on the tape system. It also reminded me that as much I came to dislike the end of BLL s2, the acting remains exceptional and I honestly think the Streep performance doesn’t get enough credit (even though Woodley remains my favorite). That said, I haven’t seen Linney but I’m sure she’s especially flashy as well and would probably have the tape win on lock.
also, Cox has a stronger tape than Strong in Hunting.June 11, 2020 at 3:15 pm #1203528629

That’s from episode 7. I think 6 would be her tape. The material isn’t subtle at all, but Kidman’s performance is rather subdued. But I will stand corrected if this is indeed a performance that would win under the tape system. Regardless, she gives a master class in acting in episode 6. Absolutely phenomenal. As you said, Tyler, the cast is sublime.

- Lead Actress – Laura Linney (Kidman is way too subtle in her big episode)
- Lead Actor – Billy Porter/Sterling K. Brown
- Supp. Actress – Way too many to mention.
- Supp. Actor – Tom Pelphrey in a heart beat
- Guest Actress – Julie Dretzin (?)
- Guest Actor – I have no idea
Wich tape? ‘Under His Eye’? It’s a very good episode for her but her screentime isn’t as big as Jane Lapotaire in ‘Bubbikins’ and Alexis Bledel in ‘God Bless the Child’. I think Jane would (probably) win, since she has the bigger episode.
I think Supporting Actress would probably be Helena since she has basically an entire episode to herself (and a showy one). Nicole could’ve been competitive with ‘The Bad Mother’ but I do agree that Laura seems more like an obvious choice. Pelphrey would win in a landslide.June 11, 2020 at 3:34 pm #1203528662
I just checked; that happened in “God Bless the Child.” 🙂 https://youtu.be/R5xPNIDV4ek
Oh. Thanks. I confused the two episodes. Whenever I think about ‘God Bless the Child’, I think of Ann Dowd. That must be the reason why I thought Bledel big episode was ‘Mary and Martha’. I will fix my post. Thanks again.June 11, 2020 at 3:36 pm #1203528671
All good 🙂 I was just curious because someone in a different thread also cited “Mary and Martha” as her episode. God Bless the Child was definitely a good episode for Dowd, too. Amazing, actually.

She absolutely should repeat for those scenes alone.
If not for Ms. Tyson, I’d agree. Realistically, I think Bledel takes this though. Bet against THT at your own peril in drama guest actress. That 3 for 3 speaks louder than anything else.
